Giving a gift card? Why not create a little sleeve for it that was specifically designed for the recipient?
You will need a piece of cardstock that is 3 1/2" by 5". Score at 2 1/4" and 4 1/2"
Fold on score lines and add Tombow Mono Multi to the 1/2" section and fold over to create the sleeve. Easy Peasy :)
Depending on how you want to decorate, you can create your sleeve either going horizontal or vertical.
I used the flower from the Friends set from Gourmet Rubber Stamps. I stamped the flower in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it in with Tombow Dual Brush pens. I used: #020 Baby Peach for the center and #772 Blush for the petals. I attached the flower to the front cover with Tombow Foam Tabs. Tombow Power Tabs were used to hold the ribbon leaves into place. I covered the center of the flower with Tombow Mono Aqua to give it a pretty shiny center.
I used the Gourmet Rubber Stamps Thinking of You set for the front of this sleeve. I inked up the flower on the stamp with Tombow Dual Brush pen #856 Chinese Red and the leaves with #076 Green Ochre. I used foam tabs to adhere the image panel to the sleeve.
I hope you will think about making sleeves the next time you want to give a gift card.
